Fourth Python Lecture for Software Carpentry

The fourth lecture on Python for the Software Carpentry course is now up. It covers sets, dictionaries, and a little bit of algorithmic complexity. Comments and criticisms are very welcome.

And if that’s too serious for year, check out the web site for the Waterfall 2006 conference ;-).

Quality Assurance Lecture Now Available

It used to be the introductory lecture on testing; now it’s more of an introduction to quality assurance from a programmer’s point of view. It’s changed even more than the style lecture; comments and corrections would be very welcome. (And yes, I know, the diagrams are missing…)

The Software Carpentry lecture on programming style has been revised. Comments on this would be particularly welcome, as it’s substantially different from what I delivered last fall.

Software Carpentry Introduction revised and on the web

I have revised the Introduction to the Software Carpentry course. This was the easy one: no diagrams, no code fragments, no glossary entries; the rest will be harder. I’d be very grateful for feedback, comments, and corrections. (And yes, audio will follow, but not today—my nephews are playing Zombies downstairs, and juvenile shouts of, “Eat lead you undead scum!” aren’t quite the background I have in mind.
